This spring, we find ourselves in an unprecedented situation and this pandemic presents challenges in many forms. But please know this: the HumBio community is here for you. Our community is made up of so many strong, compassionate, and smart individuals who have risen to the occasion and are continuing to do incredible things to make the world a better place. We here in Human Biology are committed to continuing to provide an exceptional interdisciplinary education and experience to our students. Below, you can find links related to health and wellness, links related to fun community-related activities to give us all a break together this quarter, and then some key career-related and other university-related resources.

As we navigate this complex and ever-changing landscape, our team is available to help you! If you have any ideas on community building, online instruction/learning, or anything else, please feel free to send them our way.


There are no serious action items on this page, friends - just positive ways to connect us all together and keep the HumBio community thriving. Join, follow, share in whatever way you would like, whenever you would like, if you would like! Stay tuned!

HumBio Pen Pals

Do you want to connect with HumBio faculty? Are you a freshman looking to connect with a HumBio Senior?  Are you willing to give advice to students declaring?  We invite you join the HumBio Pen Pal program. This is an opportunity to connect with the HumBio community one-on-one. The only pen pal expectation is that you write to each other at least once a month to check in and learn about each other until we can return to campus full time. Our hope is to host a Pen Pal lunch for everyone to enjoy connecting, in person, when we can. Sign up here. 

Senior Capstone Presentations

Join us in celebrating HumBio Seniors as they share their HumBio experience in their Capstone presentations which start April 30th  and continue through May 15th.  Each student presentation is approximately 10 minutes with 5 minutes for Q&A. RSVP to receive a Zoom link.
